Pakistan arrests Mumbai terrorist attack suspects

Pakistan police have raided a camp run by a militant group believed to be behind the Mumbai Terrorist attacks and have arrested a number of suspects.

The camp raided was run by the Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistani militant group that with a long history of terrorist attacks in Kashmir and believed to be the group that financed and backed the Deccan Mujahideen, the group that claimed responsibility for the attacks.

According to a report in the IHT, a senior Pakistani security official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that a man suspected of being the mastermind of the Mumbai attacks had been arrested. But the same official said later that even though about a dozen people had been arrested in the raid at the camp, the suspect, Zaki ur-Rehman Lakhvi, had not been arrested.

Either way, it’s good to see some action from Pakistan on the matter.
